    Oh please. If someone had put out a cartoon of a chimp being shot in reference to Bush, they'd be sitting in Guantanamo right now waiting for Barack to let them out.

    Did anyone else notice the "beware of dogs" sign hanging on the post? Add the whole threat of dogs into this conversation and I certainly can see the racial undertones. Just saying.

    I thought that was pretty plain.

    Referring to black people as any kind of primate is inherently racist just from a historical point of view. Come on, you all know that. Don't play stupid.
    I do know that. I just can't believe in this day and age in a regular newspaper someone would run that cartoon. I said I was hoping it was unintentional, but it is hard to believe they didn't know what it meant.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    Leave Obama A Loan.

    Anyway, no matter the supposed intent, a political cartoonist knows it would be a shitstorm to use a dead chimp in a bit about Obama's stimulus bill----they knew what they were doing. It's either racist or attention whoring.

    ...they should be allowed to run it....if not, then what is the difference between this and the cartoon that the Muslims wanted pulled from the Danish newspapers because they found it offensive?.....protest by not buying their paper....do not restrict free speech even when it is stupid and/or offensive......

    You picked up on that, also? It's racist. Bull Conyers dogs, primates, two white officers... There are KKK members sitting back smiling at this cartoon as I type this saying "Those damn Yankees aren't so bad after all!!"

    For the next four years we're going have watch someone stir the black vs white pot and hear someone bitch about every action and reaction because Obama's half black.

    Another example:
    Obama's picture removed from Peterson's President's Day sign | presidents, obama, commissary - Top Stories - Colorado Springs Gazette, CO

    NAACP and Sharpton are going to be real busy for another 46.5 months.

    People forget that hate and racism goes both ways.

    It's going to be a long 4 years.

    the muslims objected because it depicted muhammed AT ALL. They arent allowed to represent him in any form.

    btw, here's some other cartoons from this particular 'artist'

    I can totally see how in poor taste this cartoon is, but I'm wondering if it has anything to do with this latest news story?

    Chimpanzee attack phone tapes released | The Australian

    Chimpanzee attack phone tapes released

    February 19, 2009
    A WOMAN taped pleading with police to shoot her pet chimpanzee because it "ripped the face off" her friend has changed her story over whether she gave the animal mood-altering medication.
    Travis, a 15-year-old chimpanzee who has starred in TV shows and ads, so savagely attacked Charla Nash that police didn't recognise she was a woman when they responded to the emergency call of the animal's owner Sandra Herold, Associated Press reports.

    On the tape, which was released overnight by police, Ms Herold cries, "He's killing my friend!''

    In the background the chimp can be heard grunting.

    "Who's killing your friend?,'' the emergency operator asks.

    "My chimpanzee! He ripped her apart! Shoot him, shoot him!''

    Once police arrive at Ms Hergold's home in Stamford, Connecticut, an officer radios back after seeing the bloodied Ms Nash on the ground: "There's a man down. He doesn't look good.''

    "We've got to get this guy out of here. He's got no face.''

    Ms Hergold had attempted to wrestle Travis off Ms Nash and after placing the call to police had also stabbed her pet with a carving knife and hit him with a shovel without stopping the assault.

    "He looked at me like, 'Mum, what did you do?''' Ms Hergold told NBC's Today Show overnight.

    "It was horrific what happened and I had to do what I had to do, but still, I'll miss him for the rest of my life.''

    Eventually Travis ran off but when police arrived and tried to protect the injured woman Travis attacked them, forcing officers into their cars.

    The chimpanzee ripped the side mirror off one police vehicle before opening a car door and forcing a cornered officer to shoot the animal several times.

    Leaving a trail of blood Travis retreated to his living quarters where he died.

    Ms Nash, 55, had gone to Hergold's home to help coax the chimp back into the house after he got out but she was barely out of her car before the Travis attacked, police said.

    She remains remains in a critical condition in hospital with serious injuries to her face and hands.

    Ms Hergold today denied her earlier statements that she had given Travis tea laced with the drug Xanax, which doctors say can stimulate aggression in unstable people.

    After telling police she gave Travis the drug, Ms Hergold had even showed off the mug the tea had supposedly served the spiked beverage in on TV.

    Police are considering laying charges.

    A pet owner can be held criminally responsible if he or she knew or should have known that an animal was a danger to others.

    Travis lived may years with Ms Hergold as a member of the family.

    He ate and drank at the dinner table, brushed his teeth, used a remote to find baseball on TV and logged onto a computer to look at online images.


    As a young chimp he starred in TV commercials and had appeared on a talkshow as well as a TV pilot.

    Yes, it does, but that still doesn't explain the stimulus comment in the cartoon.
    Can you explain it, in connection to just having shot down a chimp, why that
    be of any significance to the signing of the bill?

    The beware of dog sign was actually there when they shot the chimp I saw it on the news... I was thinking the sign should have said beware of Chimpanzees.
